About the Event

Michael DeAngelo is Washington State’s Deputy Chief Information Officer. But the Office of the CIO has been operating with the Holacracy self-organizing model for part of the organization since February of 2015. So maybe his title is meaningless?

The state of Washington spends approximately $2B a year in technology spend. In his role, Michael is challenging state government to think differently by bringing in practices like Lean Startup to build new services, Agile to produce value early and often, and Value-based hiring to bring in the right talent. Perhaps, the most novel and provocative challenge is his work bringing in Holacracy to empower the workforce and respond to change faster. WaTech was the first government in the world to use Holacracy in a big way. In addition to leading change, Michael is also a SCUBA instructor, pilot, beekeeper, welder, stained glass artist and still has time to be a father of daughters.

Invited Denters and members of The Collective can join us on the evening of June 19th at 7:00pm for the live broadcast. We’ll have happy-hour priced beer and wine, as well as great food available from the kitchen at The Collective, and a wonderful live session ripped right from the pages of the Dent Conference, broadcast live around the world.

The podcast will last about an hour, with a short time beforehand and after to mingle and do some live audience Q&A.
